The trial of a woman accused of racially abusing tram passengers has been moved to September.

Emma West, of New Addington, was due to stand trial today charged with two racially aggravated public order offences, one with intent to cause fear or provocation of violence.

The 34-year-old was arrested after a video allegedly showing her racially abusing fellow passengers on board a Croydon to Wimbledon tram, appeared online last November.

On Friday, the trial was put back until September, the second time the trial has had to be rescheduled after it was adjourned in June to allow for new psychiatric reports to be written.

Her trial will now take place at Croydon Crown Court on September 5.
